    Are all the truths u believe in self-evident? Are all the truths u believe in true & right or is it just ur version of what u think to be true or what the media or textbooks tell u? Can u accept all points of view or are u stuck in ur own mindset? Are all ur truths catered around ur biases? Can spin doctors collectively brainwash us all to believe their agenda & hype? Or do u take any information ur fed with a grain of salt?.....

    I don't have any versions.
    "Truth is singular, its versions are mistrusts" from the movie cloud atlas.

    The way I see it is first receive a statement, try to understand it, followed by reason & doubt, then experimentation if required, then more understanding, then repeat the experiment and finally conclusion.(Just like in any scientific research)
    Later, if my conclusions are proved wrong, I'm always ready to disregard my results.

    Truth in itself is pure and singular, when someone is bringing bias to it either consciously or unconsciously, for good or for bad, they're tampering the truth, Which of course will turn it into a lie.

    There's a discounted book I keep passing by at the doorway vestibule of Barnes & Noble---"History's Greatest Lies". Been wanting to purchase it to read.

    Guess all truths can be manipulated, especially when it comes to wars. Whoever wins the war can retell history as they please.

    And now with technology, everyone can witness recordings of police brutality or leaked war crime footage that can't be fabricated.....

    “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”-Buddha

    Yes, the more freedom we have, the more it's difficult for the criminals to hide their sins. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why nowadays some of us feel that we're losing freedom. SOPA, PIPA, Wikileaks, 9/11, Trevor Martin, Food scams, Oil spills, media etc. are perhaps the direct evidences of the rulers and corporations trying to gain power and control over the masses.

    Sometimes, it's even difficult to trust what we see

    So much subterfuge goes on in any government. If anything, conspiracy theories are always intriguing.....

    Seems we all go on oblivious as long as our own version of reality remains in tact.....

    What I don't get is how some people can live with a lie and would rather live with that lie than tell the truth. Case in point - I came across an RJ profile where the guy was married to a woman and this guy admitted he will meet other men discreetly. When confronted that what he was doing was wrong, he didn't deny it; rather, his rebuttal was that young guys will never understand the pressures of getting married and meeting family expectations.

    WTF?? I don't understand this mentality because I don't get how anyone can live without a conscience. When I came out during the early 20's, it was the best feeling to be able to tell the truth and overcome the obstacles associated with it.
